After the enthralling season-opener in Bahrain, the 2021 Formula 1 season moves to the second round in Imola. Serving as the replacement for the Chinese GP in the 23-race calendar, the race will go by the moniker – Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
Imola made its return to F1 after being away for more than a decade. However, it was not originally supposed to feature in the calendar. But the COVID-induced pandemic forced the FIA’s hand, and they had to draft a new calendar with more European races with the restrictions making it unfeasible to host the races in many countries.
Follow us later in the afternoon for the latest updates and results from the Imola Circuit, as the qualifying session for the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF21.
